How to thread a gui socket program

Hello,

I have written a gui socket program and I need the program to add multiple clients to the program.  I was reading how to thread socket program with no gui.  I was wondering how to do it with a gui program.  Any good tutorials or advice would be greatly appreciated.

you would do it the same as the non-gui version. You just need to ensure when you want to update the gui you do it from the event dispatch thread
theres an example here that shows how to do it

I would use a SwingWorker to consume the stream and to update the gui
